by Conrad Black As I am about to depart on an overseas trip and will miss at least one week in this space, I offer a brief forward look on the home stretch of the election campaign. The Democrats have absolutely no plausible argument for their own reelection or for the continuation of the Bush-Clinton-Obama ...Read More...

by Conrad Black The American election has now become so absurd and outrageous that we are fully into the season of unctuous hand-wringing that the presidency has been mortally wounded as a place of moral and political leadership and that the country is inexorably politically dysfunctional and debased. ...Read More...

by Conrad Black American presidential politics are now uncharted and turbulent waters. The key to Donald Trump's success in the primaries and in thrashing the mainstream Republican Party, which sank without a ripple apart from the hundreds of millions of dollars it had squandered to pick up only ...Read More...

by Conrad Black It is already a platitude that Donald Trump had a bad week. The stridently partisan national (and international) media have translated Mrs. Clinton's unimpressive and fairly narrow victory in the first debate into a terrible "drubbing" (the word is that of a Canadian journalist; they ...Read More...

by Conrad Black Great Debate was, as all America except CNN knows, an anti-climax. No commentator's view is worth more than the opinion of anyone else who listened to the debate, but I think it was a tactical marginal victory for Clinton, a draw in its impact on the election, and a strategic victory ...Read More...

by Conrad Black Reluctantly, I revisit the Trump-Clinton campaign, with the excuse that it is not only dominating news and comment more than any election I can remember, but is eliciting astonishing and irrational responses from sensible people. Normal people who are kind to children and domestic ...Read More...

He is the clear choice for conservatives. by Conrad Black As I suggested when I gave readers a rest from me five weeks ago, the Republican convention successfully celebrated the complete rejection of the post-Reagan Republican party.

by Conrad Black In news terms, it has been a quieter summer than usual, and not remotely reminiscent of invincible summers that presaged a global descent into terrible times, such as 1929 or 1939. There has not even been the sort of flash crisis that brought us all in from the verandas or off the ...Read More...
